Summer Beer Thing

We hope you enjoyed this year’s Summer Beer Thing, a three-day Summer celebration of the best beers that the North and beyond has to offer.

Makers of Indy Man Beer ConPort Street Beer House, and The Pilcrow combined for the third year running to deliver the extravaganza that is Summer Beer Thing. The festival presents examples of the very best beer styles from the North West’s (and beyond) bristling brewery scene. Expect to find 60+ beers pouring at any one session with a whopping 200+ lined up for the duration.


The Pilcrow was the nerve centre of Summer Beer Thing with the expansive doorstep of Sadler’s Yard housing a marquee of cherry picked craft beers and the tastiest street food. Bring & Mix brought their own style to our cocktail bar featuring our special Lervig 3 Bean Stout, espresso martini.

Beers were grouped together in styles, with bars focused on pouring the best pale ales, IPAs, fruit, sour beers and much more. The emphasis was on freshness and perfect Summer pairings. A showcase of what’s happening in your own back yard…in Sadler’s Yard. 

Summer Beer Thing wouldn’t happen without the support of our sponsors: Collective Arts Brewery, Kegstar, NOMA and OverWorks - Thanks guys!
